Xlets usually require a brief manual on how to install the software and how it works. It describes details about the latest version of the software, the 0.3.6., although there have been plans to change the features and how they work.

The manual typically talks about the directory structure one should get when downloading and unzipping the file, about how to start the software, how to run it, about the remote control, the shortcut keys and the settings file. The information is meant to help any new user to start using the emulator, but more information can also be found online, especially related to components and troubleshooting any problems.
